We chose to eat in the restaurant two out of the three night stay. Tuesday night was very crowded and we chose from the specials menu. Trio of seafood, fish, prawns and soft shell crab on a Vietnamese style salad and twice cooked duck. Both very good and large serves. Thursday night we were the only ones in the restaurant... More

Typical old pub accommodation with a modern touch. The rooms are huge and have everything you need to enjoy a comfy stay in BH. Centrally located in the main street. Plenty of eating options either at the Astra in along the main street.

We enjoyed our meal. I had Chicken Schnitzel and my husband had steak and we couldn't complain about the food and generous portions. The staff were really good and very helpful. Compliments to the Chefs too. We also enjoyed Cocktails in the seating area outside the bar. A pleasant ace to spend time.

Was recommended to this place for a meal, well the service started off good, ordered drinks fine, ordered entree fine, ordered main meal not so fine, took over an hour we were starving, they did apologize & we got our entrée for nothing. The quality of the meals was excellent the service a little lack lustre.

For most of the time, it was a wonderful stay and we really couldn’t fault it in any major way. The room itself was comfortable, large and had a level of luxury to it – good as you’d get in a country town in the middle of nowhere. The staff at reception and the restaurants were all very friendly and... More

Lived here 25 years ago and there was nothing like this. Beautifully refurbished dining room, friendly service (loved the tats) and superb food. We shared an Atlantic Salmon and a Chicken risotto ( a bit oily) - preceded by three dips that were exquisite. Number 1 in Broken Hill.

We came for dinner on a Saturday night, after it was recommended to us from our hotel. The staff were efficient and friendly, and quickly had us seated with drinks on the way. The menu is varied and suits people of all dietary requirements. The food was tasty, and well prepared, and we enjoyed the venue. It was not busy,... More

I love this hotel, its right on the main street on the corner with a massive balcony. Not much traffic & quiet at night. The room is massive and the decore matches the hotel perfectly. I loved the bathroom spa. The room has really high ceilings and the softest carpet that makes it feeling like walking on cushions. The staff... More
